Your Home in the English Lake District

We insist on the highest levels of comfort and service at all times but in a rather more discreet fashion than you might expect because, here at Holbeck Ghyll, we want all our guests to feel at home.

Surrounded by acres of lush woodland and immaculate gardens, it’s not just the exquisite food, elegant surroundings and charming staff that have earned us a string of top awards – it’s also the view, which gazes over Windermere lake and has been named among the best in the world.

The delightful scene is framed by some of England’s most famous peaks, including Coniston Old Man, the Langdale Pikes and Scafell Pike, and has inspired artists and poets for generations. Now, whether it's drenched in sunshine, shrouded in swirling cloud or draped in snow, Holbeck Ghyll’s is a view that captivates visitors to the Lake District all year round.

Our small and exclusive hotel is the ideal base for luxury short breaks spent relaxing or exploring both the northern and southern Lake District by foot, car, bicycle - or even by helicopter.
